The Alley Song
You got none in your pockets You got none in your hands Well, I don't have to see your eyes To know what you're not thinkin' And even when you're not the best You still try hard as hell Well, I saw him walkin' in the alley He stopped to wish me well And he told me go to California 'Cause that's where it all sells And I knew this girl from Atlantic City Full of generality All she could do is talk and smile But she got the best of me And even when you're not the best You still try hard as hell Well, I saw her walkin' in the alley She stopped to wish me well And she told me go to California 'Cause that's where it all sells And you find porch on Church Avenue You're laughin' at me now 'Cause you were standin' when I came here And you're still standin' And when you know you're not the best You hope no one can tell Well, I saw them layin' in the alley I stopped to wish them well And you know I went to California
